Hello! I’m Laura, a designer, illustrator and maker from sunny Brighton! I’m a colour lover, pattern obsessor, tea drinker and creative thinker. I create animal and pattern illustrations for a range of unique handmade gifts and acrylic jewellery.
My background is in graphic design and print, I love taking a subject and simplifying it into its basic form and shapes. I'm inspired by the natural world, Scandinavian design and the colours and patterns of the 1950s. My style is flat colour, sharp lines with a retro, nostalgic feel. I try to bring a touch of Scandi and a big pop of colour to every design.
I split my time between creating my own collection of colourful handmade products and offering a logo and branding design service to fellow independent businesses. If you want to find more about the branding send me a message, I’d love to hear about your project!
As I work independently, being involved in the maker community is really important to me. I am a leader for the Brighton Etsy Team and love to meet up and hang out with local creatives. As part of the team we organise monthly meet ups, workshops, markets, events and support others on the handmade quest.
It is important to me to have as little environmental impact as possible. I used recycled acrylics, non plastic packaging and eco-friendly organic cotton. Each order is packaged with care and my hope it feels like Christmas to open it! I hope it brings smiles and a little bit of positivity to your day!
